Conclusion: Since the LG Lucid 2 is currently available for free with a 2-year Verizon contract, there is a lot to like about the device. It is small and lightweight, making it easy to carry around, the 4.3” qHD display is a nice size with clear text and images, the user interface is well laid-out and easy to use, not to mention the device has good call quality and a larger capacity battery.
Pros: Free with contract, Pleasing size, Good specs and plenty fast
Cons: Camera & video capture quality is a bit lacking, Music app doesn’t offer many settings
Summary: With its long battery life, solid performance and fast Web speeds, the Lucid 2 is a solid handset that shoppers on a budget should check out. Those dipping their toes into the smartphone market for the first time should also get some mileage out of the phone's Starter setting. The one major issue we had with the Lucid 2 was its dim display, which makes using the phone outdoors rather difficult. We were also put off by how hot the phone became when we played games.
Pros: Long battery life, Fast LTE speeds, Starter mode simplifies Android for first-time smartphone users, Excellent camera performance
Cons: Relatively dim display, Exterior becomes hot while playing games
